Voodoo Fon is spoken by over half the people of Benin and it is the mother tongue of voodoo. In Fon the root word for voodoo is vodoun that means spirit or god. Voodoo had its origins over 350 years ago in West Africa. In fact Allada, a small town in Benin, is often called the 'cradle of voodoo'. In 1996, January 10th became National Voodoo Day in honor of its followers that make up 65% of Benin population. The religion Vodoun was a by-product of the slave trade.

Visions of a Past Society In a world where society is disorganized, unhappy, and chaotic, it can be extremely difficult to provide an honest, and just law system. As a result, in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, people use their religion (Puritan), as judge, jury, and executioner. For some people, it can be very troublesome to live a normal life when you are surrounded by biased and chauvinistic men and women. In this story, Hester Prynne is a victim of her religion, and her fellow tow

Gold has a couple of fairly unique properties that have made it attractive to jewellers throughout history. Prime among these is its resistance to corrosion. The only chemical that can dissolve or even tarnish pure gold is royal water, a mixture so fiendish few of us are ever likely to encounter it and those who do will have other things to worry about than if i

He believed that true eloquence and ethical wisdom had been lost during the Middle Ages and could onl

To extinguish the flame water should not be used. A

Whether we realize it or not, sensory receptors play a big part in our everyday life. Without the ability to sense our outside surroundings, we would quickly be put at a disadvantage to those around us. It is often taken for granted, but every facet of life depends on the ability to sense things. From the time when we first hear our alarm clock in the morning, to getting our balance once we get out of bed, then having to see the way to get to the bathroom, and even being able to taste and smell

The Salem witch trials
The Salem witch trials The Salem witch trials began with the accusation of people in Salem of being witches. But the concept of witchcraft started far before these trials and false accusations occurred. In the early Christian centuries, the church was relatively tolerant of magical practices. Those who were proved to have engaged in witchcraft were required only to do penance. But in the late Middle Ages (13th century to 14th century) opposition to alleged witchcraft hardened as a result of the
